Alternatives for Haraam Products and the Status of Kellogs Foods
Q. Concerning the halaal-haraam updates, are there perhaps known alternatives to the haraam listings on your website. Also, are the Keloggs cereals, namely coco pop and corn flakes, in particular permissible to consume?
A. We are not aware of exactly which items you are referring to whose alternatives you seek. Be circumspect when purchasing any product. The majority of processed foods contains ingredients that are camouflaged in technical jargon not understandable to the layman and which pose a health hazard apart from the concealed haraam. Turn to wholefoods or natural foods which have not undergone laboratory processing and de-naturing with a variety of chemicals and haraam substances.
In so far as Kellogs products are concerned, this company freely uses gelatine in their products. Therefore abstain from all Kellogs products.

Abu Dharr Radiallahu Anhu narrated Rasulullah Sallallahu Alayhi Wasallam as saying:
In the morning alms are due for every bone in man's body. His salutation to everyone he meets is alms, his enjoining good is alms, his forbidding what is evil is alms, the removal of harmful thing from the way is alms, to have sexual intercourse with one's wife if alms, and two rak'ahs which one prays in the Duha serve instead of that.
